Extraordinary Love
« on: November 05, 2017, 12:19:39 PM »
I'm 34 and I've been a bit of a super fan since I was about 12. Pop is my favourite album. However out of the most recent years 'Ordinary Love' has quite possibly become one of my favourite tracks of all time and I consider it highly underrated.

Im quite happy for U2 to leave it as it is.

Is anyone else worried about hearing the new version?

I want them to re-record it in a key that Bono can sing in without screeching. #AManCanDream
Listen as Hope and Peace try to rhyme,
Listen over marching bands playing out their time.

They're flogging a dead horse there.  Sometimes it's best to just leave be.

I never liked the song. Don't know why we need another version.

I really underrate the song  ;). But it's the only song I've heard sung by a random 16 year old girl just at her locker at the high school cause she was bored.

Not a favorite of mine at all, but I'm glad you enjoy it.  We all enjoy different aspects of this band, which is great I think.

A different version that's being included as a bonus track isn't a big deal. It's a decent song that most have already forgotten about, though I will admit it sounded good when I saw them play it in Chicago a couple years ago.

This!
I saw Gloria live. Even if I never see the band live again, at least I saw Gloria live. :)
